Support » Fixing WordPress » Is backfilling possible?

  • Resolved KathrynBassett


    I’m getting a start –
    But you will notice that today I posted three messages to “catch up”. They are actually January messages, but show up in February. Is there a possible way to backfill? For instance, I want those three messages to be with their respective dates. I also have other messages from other years that I would like to post, with the correct months and years. If this can be done, then how do I do it?

  • When you edit (or indeed write new) posts, there’s a box on the right-hand side of the sedit creen called “post status”. Click on the wee minus sign to expand this box, then just tick the “edit timestamp” checkbox, and go ahead and alter your date.

    Hope this helps 🙂

    You can at any time fake the publish date – nice thing 🙂
    When you go to Manage Posts you get a list of all your posts, and you can click “Edit” to do just that.

    To the right of the editor, you find a box “Post Timestamp”, where you may change the date and time.
    The you just “Save”, which means republish.

    There you are.

    Cool! Thanks a lot!
